A very well-made 3D puzzle platformed game. I must say, as far as graphics go, this game was way ahead of its time. Also how the lore connects to Half-Life is unbelievable. However, this game is extremely stressful and I need to be extremely precise at some chambers. I'm stuck at test chamber 18 and lost my patience already.

Played it on 360, then on PC. Red Ringed my 360. I watched a playthrough of the game before I could play it because I was pretty excited for it. Ruined the game for me. Still fun for what it is, the last section of the game is the best part.

Amazing classic and should be tried by all along with the squeal! It lives to all the praise it gets!

For sure not as good as the sequel but for the time this is really good. I love how this game feels more eerie in the sense that you are alone in the testing facility as apposed to portal 2 which feels more like you are with others.
The gameplay obviously is super good, portals are just fun to play with.


j'ai vraiment trop kiffé mais je me rappelle plus très bien ça date

Short but very rewarding. Who knew puzzle games could be so fun? Everything about this game is great with its main drawback being it simply doesn't go far enough with the puzzles. Regardless, it's still one of the most unique experiences in gaming to this day.
